Johnston Health Diabetes Center

A hospital department of Johnston Health

On March 27, we launched a year-long campaign to raise awareness about the harmful effects of the diabetes. Our goal is to reach 20,000 people in 12 months! Together, we’re “Derailing Diabetes.”

At the Johnston Health Diabetes Center, our goal is to improve the health of the people in our communities through education and guidance on living with diabetes. Our Certified Diabetes Educators teach our patients ways to decrease symptoms, reduce risk of long-term complications, and start living a healthier life. We offer a variety of programs that can help you or a family member who has been diagnosed with diabetes.

Our diabetes education program is recognized by the American Diabetes Association and meets the National Standards for Diabetes Self-Management Education and our diabetes support group is there for you to share your story and learn from others.

Assess Your Risk

If you have a family history of diabetes, you have a greater chance of developing type 2 diabetes. You are also more likely to develop type 2 diabetes if you are over age 45, are overweight, or are not physically active.

Could you have diabetes and not know it? One in four Americans with diabetes has it and doesn’t know it. Take the American Diabetes Association Diabetes Risk Test below to see if you are at risk for type 2 diabetes. Click image to download.
